The opening times of a 19th Century windmill have been announced.

Thelnetham Windmill, built in 1818 and restored to working order in the 1980s, saw its ownership passed on to Suffolk Building Preservation Trust last year.

The mill is now well maintained by a group of highly skilled volunteers, with the hope that it will start producing flour on a regular basis by the end of the year.

Scheduled maintenance work, including the repainting of four sails, cap and fantail, is also set to take place.

The mill will be open to the public on the following days, from 11am to 5pm: April 20 and 21, May 11, which is National Mills weekend, May 25 and 26, June 22, July 20, August 24 and 25, September 13 and 14, which is National Heritage Weekend, and October 12.
